WASHINGTON — No shirt, no shoes? You’ve got service at this bare-naked restaurant opening in London.
Restaurant goers will soon be able to dine in their birthday suits where the waitstaff will also be showing more skin then the typical road-side diner would.
London’s Bunyadi restaurant opens in June and personifies the meaning of the word “natural” by liberating patrons from phones, electric lights — and clothing.
According to the restaurant’s website, patrons “will dine under a canopy of candle lights, creatively partitioned with bamboo and wicker, as they recline on wood-hewn furniture.” Not only is the setting and ambiance natural, so is the food. The restaurant will be serving home-grown food and edible cutlery.
“The idea is to experience true liberation,” said founder Seb Lyall in a press release. “People should get the chance to enjoy and experience a night out without any impurities: no chemicals, no artificial colors, no electricity, no gas, no phone and even no clothes if they wish to.”
The 42-seat restaurant will offer two sections, separating the clothed patrons from the not. Each guest is given a robe and a locker, in which they can deposit their belongings.
According to NBC News, for around $100 per person, guests will enjoy “wood-flame-grilled meals served on handmade clay crockery and edible cutlery, in a space void of the industrialized-world’s modern trappings.”
While the idea of dining in the nude might not attract everyone, Bunyadi’s is selling big: The current wait list is already at 24,000 people and climbing.
